Team Kahu, Edendale Primary School, Year 4-6. Teacher: Jenny Coyle.
The pupils were asked to create an iMovie commercial to promote an aspect of Kiwiana - this was our introductory activity for our Term Four inquiry about comparing NZ life with life in another country. First we started by looking at life in Aotearoa and finding out about Kiwiana icons was an integrated reading task, with the writing of the script being the writing task. Pupils worked in pairs to choose an icon, in this case the kiwifruit. We looked at some well-known NZ TV ads from the past as inspiration for how to put together a great TV ad. Pupils then wrote and prepped and filmed their movies, doing all editing and production decisions themselves.
